In the early 70s, Igor Gumowski and Christian Mira studied families of maps obtained from a dissipative perturbation of conservative maps issued from the studies on the problem of ``stochastic’’ instability in accelerators and storage rings [1]. Among these two families, there is a two-dimensional quasi-conservative map which may be written as

    x_{n+1} = y_n + \mu x_n + \frac{2 (1-\mu) x_n^2}{1 + x_n^2} + \alpha (1-\beta y_n^2}) y_n \\[0.4cm]
    y_{n+1} = -x_n + \mu x_{n+1} + \frac{2 (1-\mu) x_{n+1}^2}{1 + x_{n+1}^2} 

where parameters values were  \alpha = 0.005 and  \mu = 1/8,  \beta being the bifurcation parameter. This two-dimensional map was published in 1973  [2] and republished in 1980 [3]. Two chaotic attractors were presented as being ``stochastic’’ in 1973 (Fig. 1).

(a)  \beta = -1

(b)  \beta = -10
